In this video segment I’m going to talk to you how to transplant your carnivorous plants. If you want to know more about these plants you can visit us at So first you want to make sure you start off with nice, moist soil, you want to take your regular black pot, fill it up just enough with the soil, you don’t want to pack the soil down too much to leave room for the roots to take root, you want to take your plant, being careful of the root system especially, we can see it here. You want to make a small hole in the soil, drop the plant down into the soil and gently pack the soil around the roots. Again making sure not to pack the soil too hard, you place it in a tray and especially after the plant has been transplanted, you want to give it plenty of water. These Sundews like lots of water. If you live in a region that has high humidity year round, you can keep this plant outside or inside of your house, if you live in a region that’s rather dry, you may have to keep these plants in a terrarium in order to keep the humidity level high enough for the plant to survive.
